Intermediate care is a very effective way of maintaining or improving people’s level of independence, particularly after an accident or hospital stay. It can help them to achieve the goals that are important to them and can motivate them to feel more confident and positive. Promoting independence through intermediate care, a new quick guide from NICE and SCIE, covers the core principles of intermediate care provision and explains how practitioners can achieve the best outcomes for the people they work with.
The guide is available online or as a PDF and can be used by individuals or in training sessions.
NICE and SCIE have also published a quick guide for people who use intermediate care and their carers – Understanding intermediate care, including reablement.
